We understand that some parents and carers are supporting pupils to use social media, Facetime and Zoom to make contact during these difficult times. It is great that you are able to keep in touch this way!
As previously communicated, we are looking at how school staff can maintain contact with pupils, through video calls or similar. We are looking at options for this, but it may take a bit of time to set up. Such contact between staff and pupils is permitted via the official Glow Scotland portal only, and not via Zoom, Facebook etc. This is to protect our pupils, staff and families in line with East Ayrshire policy and General Teaching Council for Scotland Code of Conduct.
In the meantime, we also have lots of resources, links and videos on our website and invite families to engage with us via Twitter.
Parents and carers must not attempt to communicate with school staff using any method other than official communication channels. As shared earlier today, we have an online contact form via the school app and on the homepage of our website, which you can use to securely contact the Senior Leadership Team.
If you are having any difficulties accessing any aspect of the website or app, please email email@example.com and I’ll do my best to help.
Thanks very much for your cooperation.
